152. I thought humans were supposedly the more intelligent animal...
...but from reading a lot of this thread, I seriously doubt it now.

People ostensibly have the smarts to learn how to deal with cats and their claws. You know how they act, you know what they will do. Take your sizably larger cerebellum and improvise ways to train the cat out of the behavior or mitigate the damage to your material belongings.

My wife and I have five cats and we've managed to find ways to keep them from ruining the things we value. Heavy fabric, duct tape, cardboard and inventiveness can do wonders toward dreaming up "protection" that is easily removed when guests arrive.

Has modern life so derived us of our resourcefulness that we can't deal with this? I hate to see some of these posters put in a situation where they had to survive by their wits in the wild.
